CARAMELIZED BANANA WITH RUM SAUCE

CARAMELIZED BANANA WITH RUM SAUCE

2 teaspoons unsalted butter
1 banana, halved lengthwise, then crosswise
2 teaspoons packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons rum (preferably dark)
2 teaspoons water
1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons sliced or chopped nuts, toasted

Melt butter in a skillet over moderately high heat until foam subsides, then sauté banana, cut sides down, gently swirling skillet for 1 minute. Remove from heat, sprinkle brown sugar around banana, then pour rum around banana. Return skillet to heat and continue to sauté (swirl) until sugar begins to melt. Add water, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cook over moderate heat (swirl) until sauce is slightly thickened (1-2 minutes). Serve banana hot, with vanilla (or dark chocolate) ice cream sprinkled with nuts. Makes 1 serving.
